Howzit guys.

I am new at this, so this might be a newby question.

I have a '81 cx. It runs beautifully, but my right bank is running quite rich.

I don't know anyting about setting these carbs. Can someone point me in the right direction please?

My left back burns sweetly. Just my right bank is burning very black.
The first thing I would check is the float levels. Probably give the carbs a good cleaning

and see what that does for it. There is a book available through this forum that will help

you do the carbs. Take the carbs apart and clean every orifice you can find, set the float

levels and start with the idle adjust needles out about 2 and 1/2 turns. Make sure the jets

are in the correct locations. You will get many responses and lots of help from forum members.
